Parents! Touch down your helicopters and pull away from your Excel-based poop schedule pivot tables and put down your “baby’s first binary” flash cards. This is something that’s gonna really rev your rotors.
So there’s this new thing called the Sproutling, which – TL;DR – gives you full-on info about your baby right on a phone app. See, now you won’t even have to peel yourself off Facebook or Candy Crush to check on your baby. Not that you ever thought you’d have to.
The Sproutling is currently taking preorders and will be shipping March 2015. That’s like, the future, Marty.
Take a cruise around Instagram and if you didn’t know it already, you’ll soon learn that parents love to take pictures of their babies. You’ll also learn what baby ears look like, because babies have this crazy way of knowing when you’re about to snap a shot and turn their heads. Two Brazilian fathers found a great way for parents to get great photos of their babies’ faces, and you’d be surprised to learn their inspiration for their new iPhone app, Baby Pic.
We’ve also got one code for Baby Pic lyin’ around and will give it to one of you readers (see details after the review)!
Chad Zunker is the type of dude that doesn’t take crap from anyone. If you try to step to the Zunk-dogg, he’s either deferring you to his personal assistant, or he’s taking you down samurai-style by throwing a pocketful of salt in your eyes and slicing you at the kneecaps.
None of that is true.
But Zunker is an evil genius. This dude and his wife Katie needed to find a way to get their new baby to sleep. Naturally, they tried everything. The Zunkers saw a DVD on shushing and gave the process, a mimicking of the sounds a baby hears in the uterus, a go. Voila.
You’re thinking “cool story, bro. Now point me to this DVD and I’ll be on my way.” Not so fast, you jerk. This story’s just begun.
My wife went into full on nesting/baking mode during the last week of her pregnancy. We were kicking back on Labor Day weekend while she was browsing for some different cooking applications on her iPhone. She wanted to try an app that could make searching for recipes a little less stressful and more portable when we would have our little one around.
I floated her my original-gangster 3G not too long ago (which she loves – and is consequently bat-sh*t slow compared to the iPhone 4). She decided that she was going to nest and turn out some bomb-ass cookies, 39 weeks into her pregnancy (I said that she was nesting, she had no idea what she was doing).
Keep in mind that this Allrecipes.com app is not only for parents or pregnant womens. This is just a really awesome app to have, whether you know how to cook or not. All you need is the time and a little reading comprehension. And money.. or food stamps. OR a really nice relative or friend with money. Or a personal chef. Preferably one with an iPhone.
